“The Best Traditional Arabic Food In Amman!!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

This restaurant has the Best Traditional Arabic Food In Amman, hands down!!

I really like it as the majority of the meals have NO MEAT!! And being a "Proper Vegetarian" for the past 41 years this restaurant is a must visit place!!

The service is extremely fast and efficient.

The majority of guest use their extremely busy Take Away Section. You see so many people with their plates in hand ready to have the Homus or another favorite appetizer placed on it!!

There are several locations but by far the best is the original location on Medina Menorah Street!!

On Fridays, don't be "put-off" by the long lines of people, the mass majority are waiting in line for the Take-away service...

“Yummy yummy yummy”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Don't think of leaving Amman without trying this amazing place, absolutely the best Foul Medammes (Lava Beans) and Falafel in town and on the global level as well.

Their hommus, musabah and qudsieh are also recommend.
